The Purfleet-on-Thames community forum recognized by the mayor
A PLEASANT surprise for the Purfleet-on-Thames community forum to receive a certificate of recognition from our mayor Cllr. Sue Shinnick.
The forum actively works to keep residents informed of local issues, area regeneration, and council updates.
Our three local elected officials are very supportive of the forum and its activities. They attend most meetings where residents can raise concerns and speak up with them. During the lockdown, when open meetings were not possible, the forum kept people informed with newsletters and switched to virtual meetings. Recent forum activities include the installation of an impressive 14-meter memorial to the Purfleet soldiers who gave their lives in WWI. Organizing and funding the festive street lighting and after two years of interaction with Thurrock Council’s clean and green services arranged for the installation of five new benches along the riverside path , an early Christmas present for locals and visitors.
Next year, the forum will participate in the National Lighthouse Lighting Celebrations on June 2 to mark Queens’ Platinum Jubilee. If anyone, group or organization is interested in participating, please contact Trevor Batchelor [email protected]
